From 27 February 2020 to 3 January 2021 the Musée Marmottan Monet is putting on a unique exhibition titled “Cezanne et les Maîtres. Rêve d’Italie” (Cezanne and the Master Painters. A dream of Italy) in which, for the first time, the painter’s works will be presented alongside pictures by the great Italian masters from the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. A remarkable selection of canvases by the forerunner of Cubism, including an iconic Montagne Sainte-Victoire, and the essential Pastorale and still lifes, will thus face a rare ensemble of paintings by the likes of Tintoretto, El Greco, Ribera, Giordano, Poussin and, in the modern era, Carrà, Sironi, Soffici and Pirandello, and of course Boccioni and Morandi.
For the third in its series of Unexpected Dialogues, the Musée Marmottan-Monet is hosting the Franco-American abstract painter Vicky Colombet, holder of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation Grant. When invited to dialogue with the collections, this painter of meditative, sensitive landscapes naturally chose the work of Claude Monet.
